Nestled in Corolla close to the village of Duck but seemingly in a world all its own, the home’s nine bedrooms coupled with generous indoor and outdoor amenities, can be your luxurious private residence or a highly distinctive, coveted rental property. Inside the 11,000 square foot home, each of the oversized bedrooms comes with an en suite bathroom and spacious closets to accommodate plenty of family and friends. The bedrooms are spread across three floors - two on the first, five on the second and two on the third. The remarkable living area is an open-concept floor plan with an expansive great room featuring huge windows overlooking the ocean plus a sizable dining room overlooking the Sound, and a thoughtfully designed gourmet kitchen with dual ovens, two dishwashers and three full-sized refrigerators.

Here in this self-contained oasis enjoy the invigorating, mild Outer Banks coastal weather on the modern Ipe wood and cable-railed decks that wrap around the home for 360 degrees of unobstructed views. Just below the decks sits a pristine salt water pool and poolside wet bar complete with a refrigerator, ice maker, sink and television. Also outdoors is a private five-hole putting green. For days when the sand and waves come calling, a private walkway provides special, direct access to a rarity on the Carolina coast - 250 feet of personal coastline. During cool nights, lounge around a luxury outdoor fire pit or enjoy a relaxing evening on the screened in porch. Every inch of the home is surrounded with professional, spectacular landscaping that effortlessly combines with the natural surroundings. Just outside the home is a semi-private street with just 2 other homes. Pine Island homeowners can enjoy the convenience of the private Pine Island airstrip. On the beach you may be lucky enough to encounter a sea turtle nest boil as the young turtles hatch and make their way to their ocean journey. On those days when you want to explore your neck of the woods, walk just across the street to a natural hidden treasure - the Pine Island Audubon Preserve. Here you can meander along a spectacular 2.5 mile nature trail filled with evergreen maritime forests of Loblolly Pine and twisted Live Oaks, stunted Oak forests and the rare Red Bay Shrub Swamp. Beside the shallow brackish water of the Currituck Sound, you’ll also enjoy a world filled with various wildlife and waterfowl. Nine miles to the north is the quaint village of Corolla with shops, restaurants, public beach access, the historic Currituck Beach Lighthouse, the Whalehead Club, and the unique wild horse population. Just seven miles to the home’s south lies the award-winning Town of Duck. Here you can walk the stunning soundfront boardwalk that links together the town’s excellent restaurants and eclectic shops that are intertwined among a scenic mile-long stretch of marshes, wildlife and forest of the sound. Exclusive, rare and spectacular, A Welcome Respite is the perfect retreat for those seeking privacy and adventure surrounded by unmatched natural beauty in the heart of North Carolina's Outer Banks.
